On Name Leave

| Working | November 8, 2014

(We have two female colleagues in our French office; Claudette and Estelle (not their real names). One of them is currently on maternity leave.)

Me: “I emailed Claudette about my question.”

Boss: “Isn’t she still on maternity leave?”

Me: “I meant the other Claudette, the one that’s pronounced ‘Estelle.’”
